Speed: 110 bpm
The DJ's Take: Song #7 in our edition 57 mix (20:06):
Another example of how sampling can expose the youth to the classics - I discovered this one back in college during an mp3 deep dive / procrastination session (pre-streaming, sometime ~2000). Dug up the somewhat obscure Jermaine Dupri & Snoop Dogg single We Just Wanna Party With You. Went down the rabbit hole and found out this was where the beat came from - mind blown.
Best suited for a cruise ship dance party for Boomers, but put it in the right spot and you could transcend the generation gap. Easy to mix and a seamless fit in between Rapper's Delight and Hot in Herre.
